Blind Contour Drawing NC Sketch-In

(Lyric here) Last week we had a fabulous time at the Cary, NC Sketch-In.
What we lacked in numbers we made up for in laughter!

 And in some hard work!

We did blind contour drawings of our hands.
The post just previous to this one explains the process.
Remember - it's about seeing - not about the drawing!

Hannah showed off some delicious fabric she had painted and Mary toiled away at some portraiture.

 I worked a bit on throwing paint at paper. 
Random marks with guache and a sort of stiff brush.

It wasn't saying "spilling" to me
so I pulled out a white pencil and doodled oodles of happy flowers.

Hannah worked on some very bright colors
inspired by a picture she took of her child's toy.

  1. Awesome! It looks like you all had a ton of fun. I love the bright colors of the toy painting- what kind of paint did she use?

  2. Thanks so much! I used acrylic paint.

  3. You are all very talented. What a fun activity!

  4. Looks like alot of fun. Lyric what sort of white pencil did you use? The effect is wonderful.

  5. It was just a plain old prismacolor pencil. I'm still musing over what to do next.

  6. I have one of those...I'll be giving that a go soon. Good luck with your musing :)
